For all, a divorce can be the cause of anxiety and many stressful times. Marriages may be challenging, but a divorce is even more traumatic, especially when spouses go for litigation. Fortunately, many couples now choose family law mediation first to discuss and settle issues regarding their separation. Most often, couples will prefer mediation because they consider it is less expensive than contesting divorce in Singapore. It is correct; however they don’t realize that mediation can save more than just money.
Singapore divorce lawyers can act as mediator to help couples come to an amiable settlement. He/she can help couples reduce that stress level because the entire process aims to reduce conflict while working on coming up with a fair settlement that is favourable to both parties. By acting as a coordinator, the divorce lawyer or the mediator guide couples through the negotiation process, such as property division, child support and custody, children relocation and spousal support. The role of the legal representative comes to play as he/she helps maintain peace while guiding couples towards mutual understanding that is acceptable to both parties.
Family law mediation can be secure in other ways as well. The process can reduce the lengthy paperwork and the time of case proceedings. A litigation case can last for months, or even year, especially if court hearings are required. On the other hand, mediation case can last for just a few sessions. Of course, a shorter procedure reduces cost, which can, at the end, reduce overall financial stress for both parties.
